MIguru replied to kempie's topic in New York Fishing Reports - Lake Ontario (South Shore)one tactic we use that works fairly well is to lay the length of line with the fleas attached on the surface of the water as it gets a couple yards from the rod tip,then drop the tip,take up a little slack,then rip the tip upwards..this actually strips off a fairly good amount at a time..doesn't always get them all off,but much better than stripping by hand..I've done this just cleaning lines,and with a fish on the line also.. good luck out there!
First mate on a boat is the hardest working person on the boat..Sure, the cap'n deserves most of the credit, but really couldn't run his business without a good mate!! Tip the cap well but tip the mate for doing all the work..It really is work on the back deck! This comes from neither a mate, nor charter cap, just general experience.
